THE family of the late Julie Harnwell held a memorial cricket match on Sunday raising £424 for the charity, Myeloma UK.

Julie (58) died on September 27, 2011, and the family have been fundraising since, raising over £2,000.

Taking part were past players of CMB against present members of Wisbech Cricket Club.

When it rained just before tea, Wisbech decided to declare, setting CMB 191 to win.

It went to the final ball with Lyndon Waters needing 1 to draw and 2 to win off the final delivery from Danny Emmington. Fittingly, Harry Harnwell was in bat with his as they scrambled home for victory.

The Harnwells are a sporting family and Julie had a big interest in sport through her family.

Donations, a raffle, a barbecue and subs from the match amounted to £424 for the charity.

Thanks to James Howley for donating £100 and a big thank you to everyone who took part.

• The family are organising a charity dance for Myeloma UK at Walton Highway Village Club on August 11 at 7.30pm.

Topping the bill are The Gypsies classic rock band.

Tickets cost £10 including food from the venue, the Blackbear pub, the Locomotive pub, Artisan framing shop, Foster’s Property Maintenance, Brewers Paint Supplies and the Citizen office in Union Street.

Donations are also welcome from anyone who is unable to attend.

Julie, who was married to Robin and lived at Walsoken, worked at the Fenland Citizen for many years as an editorial assistant.

Robin is organising the charity dance with Wally Ormiston.
